Laurie Ann Boll Brimley
1952 - 2013
Laurie passed away unexpectedly, surrounded by her family on Oct. 4, 2013. She was born on Feb. 12, 1952, to Frank Douglas Boll and Gloria Grace Carter Boll in Salt Lake City.
Laurie is survived by husband Bill, son John, sisters Sue Kirkpatrick (Doug), Julie McCarthy (Lindsay), brother Steven (Mary), and many nieces and nephews. Her son John was the light of her life. She was crazy about that kid.
Laurie did not let her heart problems slow her down. Rather than giving up, she confronted and overcame their limitations on her life. She never complained about her health. She was a brave woman who was determined to make her world and her family's world a better place. And she did.
Laurie was an avid reader who also enjoyed hiking, biking, and yoga. She loved singing and performed with the Salt Lake Symphonic Choir for several years.
She had an adventurous spirit and liked to travel. Notable examples were living in another country and the cross country camping trip that didn't end until she ran out of money.
Laurie graduated as the Salutatorian from South High School in Salt Lake. She attended the University of Utah, where she received Bachelors and Masters degrees in Education, and a Bachelors degree in Mathematics.
Her work life was varied. She taught school in Australia and Utah. She was an educational consultant for Harper and Row Publishing. She retired from Primary Children's Medical Center where she was a data analyst.
Laurie had a good sense of humor and was always fun to be with. She was very out- going and was always ready to help a friend.
Laurie was an organ donor and in her passing, she will be able to help someone else one last time.
Donations to Primary Children's Medical Center in Laurie's name are encouraged.
